§ COLONEL HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, if he has any objection to laying upon the Table of the House the Report of General Keith Fraser, Inspector General of Cavalry, upon the recent Cavalry ManŒuvres in Berkshire, and the best means of developing the efficiency of that arm of the Service?
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN, Stirling Burghs)
This is an Official Report made for the information of the Commander-in-Chief and Secretary of State. It has never been the practice to publish such Reports by presentation to Parliament; to do so would tend to diminish at once the responsibility of the recognised authorities and the freedom with which the Officers report their views and recommendations.
